I picked this hotel for a one night lay over. Wrong decision, noisy, dirty and poorly maintained. Perfect location if you want to see the worst of. Curaçao. Pictures speak more than a thousand words, is that how it goes? See my photo from the hotels shower room. 101 on April 10, 2015. My wife slept in her clothes afraid... More

Stayed there two nights before and after catching a cruise. Nice location right on the waterfront in Otrobanda. Rooms were clean but had a smoky odour. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast as well as the service in the cafe was first class.

The hotel looks rundown. Although it has a good view of the bridge and the room was clean, in our first room the window could not close and we were moved to another room. There the lamp could not be turned off. For breakfast we had to wait very long for the food and it was not tasty.

I stayed just two nights in this hotel while I picked up a cruise in Curacao. The first thing that hits you is the terrible odour of the rooms, the carpets are stained and dirty and I believe that this is what contributes to the smell of the rooms. I stayed in two different rooms ,one the night before the... More

Hotel overlooks queen Emma bridge, nice feature. But... Room service is non existent. Cafe is OK. Rooms are dirty, smoke scented, stained bed linen. Also no hot water available in the shower. Front staff were helpful in most situations. Important note: electrical sockets in the rooms are British style and require adaptors for use of electronics with american style plugs.... More

The room was clean and i had a nice view at the Queen Emma bridge. But that was not all I expected. At first I had no wifi in the room, only poor wifi at the front desk room. The second was that there was an old fasion tv in the room and i had expected an led flat screen... More

I knew I wasn't going to a fancy hotel here - I've been here before. But I liked it last time because they placed me where I reserved, and it's relatively central. This time I got the view of the waterway, over the parking lot, not the ocean view as advertised and booked (for more money). Although I made my... More

Average stay cannot be compared to the Howard Johnson in the states though, free continental breakfast was 2 slices of bread and sausage had to pay extra for eggs which i thought was ridiculous. Its right in the middle of everything so easy access to shopping and sights but be careful because entrance to some rooms is on the street... More

I wasted money already staying there so I wont waste time to list all that's wrong. Just one word to describe the place : DEGUEULASSE (filthy in english i think). From the reception area to towels, evrything is dirty. It does not make a difference that the peoole working there are helpful. It is a shame.
